Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

I've heard what everyone's been saying about the Heisman Trophy frontrunner with the video-game offense, but I don't know if I buy it. Yeah, they've put up 50 or more points in four of their first five games, but we've seen this before. These high-scoring teams kick the shit out of a handful of crappy teams, then they play somebody decent and get beat. I'm not saying that 17th-ranked Oklahoma State is going to have the Tigers' number tonight, even though the Cowboys are also 5-0 and have also been running up scores, same as Mizzou. Maybe I'm just ready to see another Big XII team run the table and get a shot at some BCS crystal. Here's hoping Daniel can do it under the lights, at home, tonight. No. 4 LSU at No. 11 Florida. LSU hasn't lost yet, and you'll remember that Florida was shocked by Ole Miss two weeks ago. But it's the AYESSS-EEE-CCC, and it's also the first meeting of the last two national champs since 1990. Florida tailback Percy Harvin should play, and pose a fair test to a defending national championship team that's been seemingly overlooked as other teams have reshuffled ahead of them in the polls. No. 6 Penn State at Wisconsin. Penn State is suddenly loaded and, unlike preseason Big Ten favorite Ohio State, actually getting production on offense. Wisconsin took Ohio State to the wire last week, and the Badgers could bounce back into the Top 25 with a win at home. Penn State, at 6-0, could set themselves up for a title run if they can get out of Madison with a win. Penn State Quarterback Daryll Clark is still a badass; if he plays well, Wisconsin's chances are slim.
